Cindy Jo's Story, October 12th, 2018
Many people have asked me how an insecure, introverted girl from a small town ended up in Los Angeles. They want to know specifically how this girl came to be a member of an Academy Award winning sound editorial team, how she came to interview over 200 recording artist for American Top 40 and other syndicated radio shows, and how she came to work on over 1,000 audiobooks. Well, today and once a week after, I will begin to share my story. Who knows, maybe someday I'll compile these posts into an autobiography. I am certainly no writer but will tell you my story as honestly and personally as I can. I do hope that my story encourages you to step outside the box and to consider what is possible for you!
My parents were from Oklahoma City. They met at Oklahoma University where my mom, Dorlye, was studying to be an Registered Nurse and my dad, Armin, was studying Radiological Technology. Needless to say, they were big OU football fans! The first time my mom saw my dad he was leaning up against an ambulance smoking a cigar. I can't remember what kind of hat she said he was wearing but she said he was the nerdiest man she had ever seen. She did go on that first date with him. He started to drive out into the countryside and she began to give him what for because she thought he was taking her out to "try and have his way with her". Turns out there was a remote hamburger joint out that way and he intended to take her for a burger. When she understood this, she settled down. It wasn't too much longer until the two were married. This kind of sets the stage for understanding my parents. I was born late in their lives, so they were older. They had endured the Great Depression and what came after. Soon after they married, WWII started. More on that next Friday. I hope you check back. I think I kind of like sharing all this with you!
